The North Wales region
The Snowdonia Mountain range is about 45 minutes drive away for those who like serious walks or perhaps even for those who prefer more gentle strolls in the foothills...its all there.
Anglesey itself has an amazingly varied coast line, being rugged and harsh in parts and yet at the same time other parts are soft and gentle with many picturesque beaches for family enjoyment and entertainment.
Visit Beaumaris castle, druid circles between the north and south stacks near Holyhead , walk up Holyhead Mountain where , on a clear day, you can see Ireland, the Isle of Man and much more besides or descend the 300+ steps towards the South Stack Lighthouse (don't forget you have to climb them later) or for a less energetic time perhaps a visit to the County town of Anglesey at Llangefni, which is in the middle of the Island.
The types of holiday activities to be enjoyed from The Igloo include sailing , swimming, canoeing and other water sports. Most likely these activities will be best in the spring/summer /autumn. Also, from the house, there is direct access to the coastal footpath system for walks , long and short. For the birdwatchers , there is an abundance of different types of sea birds on the inland sea , which at high tide come around the house.There is also an RSPB station near to the south stack lighthouse about 6 miles away or if you want to just chill out and take it easy then you can in the comfort and warmth of The Igloo at any time of the year
